Integrate Flume with MapR-ES

Integrate Flume 1.6 with MapR-ES when you want to write Flume source data to a MapR-ES topic or when you want to write MapR-ES topics to a Flume sink.

You can use Flume and MapR-ES for many different use cases; however, here are a few examples:
Write MapR-ES topics to file on the MapR file system
To write MapR-ES topics to the MapR file system, create an agent with a Kafka source and a HDFS sinks.
Write MapR-ES topics to MapR-DB
To write MapR-ES topics to MapR-DB, create an agent with a Kafka source and a MapR-DB sink.
Write data from any supported Flume source to MapR-ES topics
To write data from any supported Flume source to MapR-ES topics, create an agent with the appropriate Flume source type and a Kafka sink or Kafka channel. For example, you can use a syslogs source to turn logs into a MapR stream topic.
Note: Before you integrate Flume with MapR-ES, verify that the Streams Client is installed on all Flume nodes. For more information, see Installing Flume.
